The Celtics have extended a qualifying offer to Jeff Green, making him a restricted free agent. The team will have the opportunity to match any other offers made to the forward from other teams.
Green is 6'9" and averaged 13.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 32.4 minutes per game last season, playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Celtics. In 26 games with Boston, he shot 48.5 from the field.
The Celtics also announced that they exercised a 201213 option on Avery Bradley's contract.

Rasheed Wallace is a man of many talents. Playing basketball. Getting ejected. Helping the disenfranchised. Throwing towels. He’s a Renaissance man, really.
Oh, and apparently he does a spot-on Doc Rivers impersonation.
During a segment on Kevin Garnett’s “Area 21” TV show, Wallace not only brought attention to the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, but was able to emulate the Los Angeles Clippers coach strikingly well. It came while Wallace was breaking down Rivers recent explosion and ejection from a game against the Brooklyn Nets, an outburst for which he was fined $15,000.
